Diagnostic Orthodontic Records

After the consultation appointment, if orthodontic treatment sounds like something that you are interested in, we would like to make measurements of your teeth and jaws. This can often be done on the same day as your consultation. To make these measurements we take a series of x-rays, photographs, and mouth molds. These diagnostic records will give Doctor Getchell all of the information that he needs to develop a detailed treatment plan specifically designed to give you an optimal bite and smile.
